Ericsson, MIT to research AI processing, ‘zero-energy’ devices for 5G, 6G networks

July 8, 2021


Ericsson and MIT have made plans to jointly research and design hardware for 5G and 6G mobile networks. Specifically, Ericsson Research and the MIT Materials Research Laboratory are collaborating on Lithionic chips design to improve the compute power, speed and energy efficiency of cognitive networks, as well as hardware advances that could lead to “zero-energy” devices.

Lithionic chips enable neuromorphic computing, which offers exponentially more energy efficient artificial intelligence (AI) processing. This, the pair claim, could enable fully cognitive networks with reduced operation complexity and energy consumption compared to today.
